Pic: with Lousingba's Ema

I have never remembered you
like i remember you at this dawn
It has been almost a year
that you passed away
leaving us alone at this age of violence and injustice,

now you are right here in front of me
telling me those stories of our lives
i thought
how irrelavant those sweet childhood memories
were in my life of protest?
I even said often to my friends Life is too short for simple things
but now when i look back for home
it is you and your presence at my home
in those sunny morning of imphal
that i can feel.
i realise now in our land
all that we can share is love
and those sweet memories
I will give your parents the warmest hug i ever can
I will never forget you as long i live.
